Matt Evans

Videographer - WFR

Matt Evans is one of the veteran staff members here at The National Center for Outdoor & Adventure Education (NCOAE), having started back in the day as our videographer. This year he became an assistant instructor, facilitating courses in the backcountry.

In addition, he continues with his duties of documenting and assisting in the promotion and marketing of everything we have to offer here at NCOAE. He has a lot of experience at that. Matt was previously an instructor for Ocean Cure, a nonprofit surf school that offers free surf lessons to medically fragile and at risk youth and adults in Wilmington, N.C., and a freelance videographer.

Having been born and raised in Jacksonville, N.C., Matt knows his way around our home state — mostly through his efforts to hone his skills in surfing, sailing, backpacking, filming and photography. And, of course, rock ’n’ roll.

He was a member of the Delta Chi fraternity at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, graduating in 2010 with bachelor’s degrees in both film studies and business administration with a concentration on marketing.

Matt cites his nonprofit and marketing background as his biggest attributes at NCOAE, as well as a genuine interest in sharing the backcountry and the great outdoors.
